Convert .pdf to .azw for reading PDF files on amazon kindle
Can anyone tell me how to convert PDF file to AZW format for reading on Amazon Kineld(not by sending .pdf to @kindle.com)? – That’s the question maybe you’re just asking.
Adobe PDF is most popular file format for books, magazines, help files and technical manuals. But if you like to read PDF files on your Kindle(the ebook reader from Amazon), I think you have to convert them first into one of the document file types the Kindle will recognize(.azw, .txt, .mobi*,.prc*).
AZW file format is a file that is compatible with the Kindle, an electronic device that allows users to read via an electronic format. Therefore, it is important to be able to convert your PDF files to AZW files to read them on your Kindle.
You can try to email your files and associated with your Amazon.com account to firstname.lastname@example.org for free conversion and delivery, but some people said they never received the converted files.
